presidential debates now. >> reporter: who could forget that wink. then-governor sarah palin winking during her 2008 debate with fellow vice presidential nominee joe biden. not just once, but some half a dozen times. then there's senator lloyd benson's dig at senator dan quayle in 1988. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: memorable moments, but hardly game-changers. while presidential debates can affect the outcome of an election, vice presidential debates like this week's upcoming match-up between vice president biden and his gop challenger paul ryan, are a different animal. >> you need to be able to see that each vice presidential candidate has hit the standard of readiness, that they will be ready in an emergency in a national crisis to be able to step into the oval office and to take the reins of the presidency. but beyond that in terms of the actual debate itself, unless there is a star killing or star catching moment, it rarely changes the course of the debate. >> reporter: democratic strategist donna bazille says the fi
. and the political media fell for it. he was not exposed as the sarah palin no-nothing that he was. he was treated with un-earned respect and his campaign was gleefully welcomed by the media as refreshing. he was regarded as a political star. and when he was elected there was serious talk in the political media of changing the united states constitution to allow foreign born naturalized citizens to run for president of the united states. the republican party was very proud of their new star. >> ladies and gentlemen, america is back. we are back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd president of the united states, george w. bush. >> thanks to his sheer incompetence, schwarzenegger quickly became a very unpopular governor and managed to salvage his re-election campaign by abandoning the republicans and adopting the democrats. he ended up tripling the state's debt. i, for one, don't blame schwarzenegger for any of that. schwarzenegger has always, very plainly and publicly, been a clown. i blame the political media for not treating him as such. political pundits spend endle
sarah palin from the great state of alaska, and i'm so excited today to endorse my good friend christian "the maverick quths "la bella for president of alpha kappa sigh. >> that was mr. laugh bela's aunt playing the really. proud and thrusting young gun of the republican congressional staffers with not a stain on his reputation. but just imagine if christian labella had been working for a democrat ink congressman. imagine the uproar if a single photograph appeared of this young man alongside, say, vice president joe biden. speaking of which, here is what mr. labella's friend, paul ryan, says about the issue of media prejudice. >> i think it goes without saying that there's definitely a media bias. look, i'm a conservative, chris.
't matter. >> sarah palin, people watched it the way you watch a nascar race with a fascination that there may be an accident or a wreck. but with the debate coming up, there is this tension on the ticket, republican ticket, between paul ryan who campaigns and gave the speech remember at the convention, there was archly ideological about creating a new world that the president has described at darwinian and pessimistic and dark. and he gives joe biden a lot of lines of attack on the ryan budget, the medicare plan and all those things. the one thing that ryan has done for the last two years has been very, very, did i say very, very specific about all these things. so he can't do the peer wets the way mitt romney did, but i think what joe biden's task is going to be is to bo right past ryan and to usewets the way mitt romney did, but i think what joe biden's task is going to be is to bo right past ryan and to use this occasion to go after the guy he's running with. people don't care that much about ryan, only that he's a stand-in -- >> that's my point, he'll have a hard time defen
high-wire act last time in 2008 when he had to go against sarah palin. i think he came out of that debate looking like the statesman. i think ryan has to pass the commander in chief test. i'm not sure if when people look at paul ryan they see someone who could fill the chair in the oval office. >> robert costa, your headline, sir. bring it home. >> "biden with a smile survives, ryan for the most part shines." >> that's not what you submitted, but we'll take it. we're easy here. explain, please. >> i think, as you mentioned, vice president biden is a very experienced debater, but i think his challenge here is to have a little bit of energy, to have a smile, but to also survive against paul ryan, who though inexperienced on the national stage, is quite intelligent. i think we'll be bringing a lot of numbers, a lot of analysis to the debate. but biden has that populous touch. i think it will really help him. >> it really is going to be fascinating to watch on thursday and talk about as well. who do you think is going to win that thing, robert? >> i think it's going to be a dra
